Contact Lenses Or Glasses – Which One’s For You?

When it comes to glasses vs contact lenses, which is the best option for you? The good news is that at Murray Opticians in Drumchapel, you’ll always find a great reason to either, or both! If it’s glasses you’re looking for, our practice stocks a great range of designer frames, but if it’s contact lenses you’re after, we also offer a comprehensive selection for all different kinds of lfestyles too. Need help deciding? Read on…

Making a Spectacle

Glasses offer greater convenience and much less maintenance than lenses in the sense that you can just pop them on when you need them, and take them off at the end of the day. There’s no need for special cleaning solutions and storage and, without the need to physically touch your eyes, there is far less risk of developing eye infections.

Of course, glasses can also be a fantastic accessory that can help you create your own unique look, and with an ever-increasing range of frames available at our practice, it’s easy to keep up to date with the latest fashions too!

What about Contacts?

Contact lenses on the other hand are great for an active lifestyle, so you don’t have to worry about them falling off and better still, they don’t steam up in cold, humid, or wet weather. Contact lenses can also give you a greater field of vision because they sit directly on your eyes, meaning there are no frames to obscure your peripheral vision.

This goes for obscuring your natural features too – contact lenses really do allow you to see and be seen.

The Choice Is Yours

If you have any questions, feel free to contact the practice and speak to our optometrist, who will be able to advise you on the right choice to suit your visual needs, your lifestyle and of course, your budget. Can’t make up your mind? Well, you don’t have to commit to choosing one over the other. Many people use both, switching between one and the other according as and when they need or want to. Whether you’re looking for glasses or contact lenses in Glasgow, at Murray Opticians, we can help you to see clearly from both sides of the glasses vs contact lenses debate!
